Best Easter Side Dishes

Easter is one of my favorite Holidays! It could be because Spring is one of the most beautiful seasons. The tulips, popcorn popping on all the beautiful fruit trees, and then there’s the food.

After a long winter there’s nothing better than fresh skinny asparagus, red ripe strawberries, sweet baby carrots, and the crown jewel…raspberries. So I decided to gather all our favorites into one easy to find collection of Easter Side Dishes. (More for me than anyone else…cause I never know where I put anything…including my glasses…which are usually on my head!)

These are truly recipes that have graced our Easter table for generations. Some are newer, some are handed down from Pioneer’s. I can promise you one thing…every single one of them have been taste tested by my very own quality control staff! (They’re a happy bunch! lol) From everyone’s “must have”…the big fluffy Lion House dinner Rolls to the Coconut Raspberry Cheesecake, one of my personal all time faves. Every member of the family has their favorite. 

Y’all have favorites too! My World’s Best Carrot Cake has been the number one recipe on the blog for 3 years with rave reviews from every single person who has ever made it. It’s one we all love too. 

Speaking of that World’s Best Carrot Cake…let’s kick off this round-up of our Nest’s favorite Easter Side Dishes with that scrumptious dessert…cause ya know what I always say…Dessert First!
